mah frehn jaymes suggests that we may not be that far removed from the likes of sandy berger:

Please. C’mon. Who among us hasn’t shoved classified documents into his pants and jacket by accident? It happens.

You’re reviewing some notes — OK, classified notes, but it’s not like they’re the secret formula for Coke or anything. Somehow they get in your clothing. Maybe you’re the sort of person who’s always putting things in your pants, and every night you empty out the contents — a gallon of milk, some lawn statuary, some D-cell batteries, one shoe, loose rosary beads. And hey, what’s this? Dang: classified documents.

might i suggest that the whole thing be worth your perusal?
